UNG recognized a record breaking 34 Distinguished Military Students (DMS) for 2022-22. They were honored Sept. 26 at the DMS Review in the Convocation Center on UNG’s Dahlonega Campus.

UNG’s professor of Military Science, Col. Bryan Kirk, commented on the announcement of the honorees. “I am exceptionally proud of our Boar’s Head Brigade DMS cadets. They have distinguished themselves through remarkable effort and consistent high achievement within the ROTC program and the UNG student body,” said Col. Kirk. “It is a testament to each cadet’s determination and capability, as well as the ROTC leaders and the superb UNG faculty and staff who support the individuals and the corps.”

To be selected, a cadet must be in the upper half of the academic class, the upper third of the ROTC class, and the upper third of UNG’s Order of Merit List, established by the professor of military science. Additionally, cadets are chosen on the basis of interest and aptitude for military service and outstanding qualities of leadership and high moral character as demonstrated by participation and achievement in campus, civic and military activities. Three of those are members of the PSIA family:

  • Connor Hamilton, Strategic & Security Studies
  • Ryan Jones, Strategic & Security Studies
  • Alex Minton, Strategic & Security Studies

Congratulations to all students named!
